To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
HTC Droid DNA Gets Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5
You may remember that just recently the HTC Droid DNA gained the ability to dual multiple ROMs thanks to an unofficial MultiROM port. So for the folks who’ve been wondering how this may be of benefit, there’s now a Sense 5.5-laced build of Android 4.4.2 that’s been ported over from the HTC One to the Droid DNA that may serve as a fine starting point.
Not possible without the efforts of XDA Recognized Developers sbryan12144 and Zarboz as well as newtoroot, joelz9614, and Hawknest; the Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 ports are currently stable and running on the Linux 3.4.18 kernel. As these have been ported from the HTC One, one will expect all the software features from the One to be present in this port. The ROM does not come pre-rooted, but this shouldn’t be a problem because you can simply root it after installation. The port offers both CDMA and GSM device support, and there are three downloads provided: an odexed build, a deodexed build, and a patch to get CDMA working.

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
